and resolve the problem.
When troubleshooting a problem, always use a process of elimination starting with the simplest
solution and working through to the most complex. Never overlook the obvious. Anyone can forget
to plug a cord into a receptacle or open the valve on the water supply line. Don’t assume that you
are exempt from such occurrences. Most importantly, try to establish a clear idea of why a problem
has occurred. Part of your corrective action involves taking steps to ensure that it doesn’t happen
again. Keep in mind that failure of a small component may often be indicative of potential failure or
incorrect functioning of a more important component or system.
If the troubleshooting and corrective actions in this chapter do not solve the problem, the problem is
probably beyond the scope of most operators to solve and you should call your Authorized Service
Agency for assistance. If you have doubts as to the proper action to take, do not hesitate to call the
Frymaster Technical Service Department or your local Frymaster Authorized Service Agency for
assistance.
Before calling a servicer or the Frymaster HOTLINE (1-800-551-8633):
• Verify that electrical cords are plugged in and that circuit breakers are on.
• Verify that water supply valves are open and that drain valves are fully closed.
